GridWeek 2012 on Its Way

 
GridWeek 2012, an interesting-looking conference on the underacknowledged but important matters of building a better grid, is just one week and one day away. If you haven’t signed up yet but might be interested, or if you’re just curious about the event, here are some more details:

  • Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC
  • Dates: October 2-4
  • 100+ speakers
  • Hot topics: low price of natural gas, lack of clear U.S. energy policy, privacy challenges of a digital world.
  • Best practices regarding the grid to be presented on “turning intra-utility challenges into value — such as big data and analytics, cyber security, [and] integrating renewable power into the grid,” as well as “including automated demand response in action, consumer engagement via social media, standards as a value multiplier, and the value of dynamic transmission.”



 
This is the 6th annual Grid Week conference — and clearly, a lot has changed in those six years.

“When GridWeek started six years ago, we were just defining ‘what Smart Grid could be’; four years ago, we were discussing ‘what we’re going to do’; and today, we’re at the point where we can discuss ‘what value we’re now realizing,'” said Lee Krevat, San Diego Gas & Electric’s director of smart grid. “GridWeek gathers the right individuals to engage in these conversations that will keep the industry moving forward towards a better energy future for all.”
